Microsoft founder and billionaire philanthropist Bill Gates made news to start the week by suggesting that Americans should no longer eat beef for the sake of the environment.

“I do think all rich countries should move to 100% synthetic beef. You can get used to the taste difference, and the claim is they’re going to make it taste even better over time,” Gates said in an interview with the MIT Technology Review. He maintained that poorer countries would still need to consume real meat, but said that the shift to synthetic meat products would drastically reduce global methane emissions.
